After returning to Paradise, California in 2018, Smith's home burned down in the Butte County Camp Fire. The tragedy inspired him to write his breakout song "One of These Days".
News of the release was reported by local press and several national outlets including NPR, which encouraged Smith to return to Nashville and continue pursuing music.
